Don’t you just love it when two great things come together? I’m not saying this is as good as a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup…mmm…chocolate and peanut butter…er, um. What I mean is this may seem like strange match, but it may well turn out to be a great combination. Danger Girl and the Army of Darkness #3 gives us a smattering of both the world of a Danger Girl and that of Ash.
This issue introduces the reader to Sydney Savage and a bit of her back story. We also get a lot of shots of her in her vintage black leather catsuit (no, I’m not complaining). So after we see how she became a Danger Girl we get to watch her infiltrate the facility where Ash is being held.
The story quickly turns towards the Necronomicon and its location. We get a view of a party of mercenaries in possession of the book and the fighting within their group. A little bit of arguing and a tad bit of murder leaves the reader with a load of questions that won’t be answered this go around. The next issue should tie it all together a bit more, or so I would think.
My only complaint was there wasn’t enough Ash, I really wanted to see a lot more Army of Darkness in the team up. That said, I loved Chris Bolson‘s art, just enough detail and well laid out. Andy Hartnell seems to have a good grasp of the art of conversation and manages to convey the beginnings of the story quite well. I wasn’t unhappy with the read, just left with wanting more…which isn’t always a bad thing. Give this series a shot, it may surprise you.
